AccuBuild Software


 

AccuBuild is a project management and accounting solution for small and midsize construction firms. The solution allows owners, managers, contractors and subcontractors to stay on the same page with one central source of information and real-time project updated.

AccuBuild's accounting and project management modules can be sold on a stand-alone basis or as part of an integrated suite. They also offer project scheduling feature to manage resources, workforce and tasks. The solution can also be accessed on multiple mobile devices including iPads, iPhones and Android devices.

AccuBuild is an on-premise construction-specific solution that should be evaluated by general and specialty contractors that need a job cost accounting or project management solution. The software is suitable for general and subcontractors in the government, commercial and industrial sectors, especially those that are doing contract work.

Not very user friendly

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

Value for Money

Pros: We were in the dark ages when it came to our Accounting and Project Management software and processes. So going from little to no organization to AccuBuild was an improvement, it is far from where it needs to be.
Cons: typical sales job of this will be great we will be great blah blah blah. they say a lot to get you to buy this expensive software and tell you how user friendly and easy it is, but as soon as you buy it they tell you you should buy 40+ hours of training a person. We still uses it but only because of the cost we have invested in it to this point. Very difficult to deal with.

Advice to Others

be sure this is what you need before you invest in it.

I like the ability to choose several jobs for a report at one time and that they don't need to be in order. Document scanning and indexing is very fast and easy; we can index to several modules at the same time too, such as an A/P invoice indexed both to the vendor and to the job.

Likes Least

We're unable to change entries once they have been posted; there's no editing allowed. You have to either void and re-enter or enter a reversing entry and then the correct one. We're unable to search for the job number, client, or G/L entry you're looking for. All reports balloon up super large, and if you resize smaller, you get a tiny little box that you then have to manually enlarge to a normal size window.

Recommendations

Do lots of demos, ask lots of questions, and don't accept any easy answers. Get specific in asking to see how to do what you currently do in your business or what you think you'll need if it's a new company. Many things that I took for granted would be standard simply are not with this software, and perhaps they would not have been with the other software I looked at. Things like repeating entries in accounts payable and general ledger. We pay our salespeople a cell phone allowance monthly, and it sure was nice to set that up one time, hit repeat, choose once monthly, and be done. In AB, I have to enter the invoice for each salesperson every month. The same goes for our monthly depreciation entry and the property tax accrual.

I would not recommend this software to anyone. They charge premium prices but do not offer a premium product or customer service. You are better off getting another name-brand construction accounting software.

Pros

Basic accounting modules (AP, AR, Payroll, Job Costing) work fine.

Cons

Project management is clunky and inefficient. Scheduling is a waste of money.
